Millbrook Proving Ground

As part of the TVRCC 50th Anniversary the TVR Car Club hired out Millbrook Proving Ground, apparently the first owners club to hire out the venue.

A very rare opportunity to drive the private tracks at Millbrook in my own car was an opportunity not to be missed.

Tracks on offer were the Alpine handling circuit, 2 mile bowl and the 1 mile straight.

What a brilliant day it was; sunshine, TVRs and tracks to play on.

Alpine Circuit
Unfortunately my good friend Dave’s Griff expired on the 2m bowl, later transpires 3 slipped liners. I chucked him the keys to mine to have a go on the Alpine circuit, result was quite spectacular…

Even more spectacular when you put this side by side with footage from one of the Millbrook instructors on the same course in a Caterham…
